Opportunity knocks, or so they say, and the question is usually whether we answer, but I believe that we make our own opportunities. Certainly there are times when we seem to have something serendipitous come our way, but perhaps we brought that to ourselves.

For instance, we all write. Now, if a publisher were to find our writing and offer us the opportunity to be published would this be something we created for ourselves? Most people would argue not really. It was opportunity knocking, but wait, didn't you choose to blog? So therefore, you were the agent of change for your future.

Still, even though we may create our own fate, we do need to choose to act on it.

What are you waiting for? Are you going to make your future brighter? Are you going to embrace life in a way that allows you to embrace the matter of opportunity as your right?


  1. Very good point. We need to choose to act, not wait for something to happen to us. Don't let me forget this one. ;-)

  2. Hello Scribe,

    What a great post! I am a huge believer in synchronicity. My current job just "fell into my lap" when a good friend told me about the opening. The job is PERFECT for me! When I think of the stress that I have been through with other jobs, trying to make things right ... sometimes we just try to hard and the Universe really does know what is best for us. I think this is my new favorite blog! I will definitely be back to see what you dream up for the other letters, and to read more of your lovely writing. I am following now.

    I am doing the A to Z Challenge as well. Take a peek at my blog too if you get a chance! I write humor, and everyone says I am the funniest person on the planet (well, maybe it is just the voices in my head saying that—that’s the doctor’s latest explanation, he’s working on adjusting my meds right now—but I will take what I can get).


  3. Great reminder to be ready when opportunity does come knocking.

    Happy A to Z-ing!

  4. So great for me to read this as a reminder that I control my destiny (much of the time)! Thanks!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
